Raising the Fremont freak flag at 112 35th Street The night before he was born under the sign of the monkey, Steve's mother dreamt she gave birth to a chimpanzee. So it's no surprise he's masterminding a Planet of the Apes entry for this year's Fremont Solstice Parade. We scored some bamboo in the morning thanks to a serendipitous call from Pat Cole, and after bumping into Boma in the road we spent an afternoon of elbow grease and electricity erecting bars and emptying beers. We finished the day by planting a flag to stake a claim in a once-forbidden zone now criss-crossed by the shadows of cranes and home to snakes.
